Nuhash Humayun expressed grief on the attack on Zafar Iqbal

Zafar Iqbal was stabbed at the back of his head by an assailant armed with a knife on Saturday.

The nephew of Zafar Iqbal and the son of prominent writer Humayun ahmed, Nuhash Humayun wrote a Facebook post after the incident. He said,

It happens to everyone. You’re going about your day when you get a call/text- someone you know is not doing well and you rush to the hospital to see them.

Usually it’s heart disease or a stroke or something…but no, not here. Not today. Someone in my family was attacked.

The media is livecasting his rush to emergency, parading the attack like some Hollywood action movie, my newsfeed is already riddled with memes, intellectuals and thoughts & prayers.

Look, I just want the people around me to feel safe in this country but that doesn’t seem to be a reality.

For me, this isn’t politics or ethics or ideals. This is family. And I’ll tell you this, my family is incredibly strong and unbelievably resilient.
And no matter what comes its way, even through pain or violence or death- my family will continue to change the world.

You can count on it.

 

Zafar Iqbal was speaking at a two-day long fair organized by the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering when he was stabbed in the back of his head by an assailant armed with a knife on Saturday.

The attack occurred around 5:40 pm. The attacker, a youth identified as Foizur, was immediately taken down and detained by authorities after a severe thrashing.

Zafar was taken to Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical College after the attack afternoon.

From there he was taken by an air force ambulance to the air force’s Tejgaon air field in Dhaka, and then taken to the Combined Military Hospital (CMH).
